Love life and husband

Mia and Shia LaBeouf met while shooting together for the 2013 movie “Nymphomaniac”; it was reported that they exchanged vows in Las Vegas, Nevada on 10 October 2016, and that an Elvis impersonator officiated the wedding; it was revealed only two days later that it was a commitment ceremony, rather than a wedding. By the end of the same month, Shia made a guest appearance in the talk-show “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, and confirmed that he and Mia had exchanged vows.

The two split and filed for divorce in September 2018, but reconciled by 2022 before the divorce was finalized, and in March 2022, Mia gave birth to their daughter.

There are no other men whom Mia’s perhaps dated, that the public knows about; she’s married to Shia LaBeouf as of April 2023, and they have a daughter together.
